Decent headset for the money


I wanted a cheap BT headset for my Blackberry Tour (9630) and this seemed like a good choice as they both recharge via a MicroUSB connector (which apparently are common on European phones now.) Unfortunately, the power supply that comes with this...

Inexpensive ; Lightweight ; Long standby time ; Survived going thru the washer/dryer (!!)

Middling audio quality ; Thin plastic ear clip might break easily

Randomly stopped connecting to my phone after 2.5 months. I've tried all steps to re-config, re-establish connection, etc etc.

Light, stylish (enough), comfortable, long battery life

Only fair audio quality, doesn't ring loud enough in ear, item sent in poor condition (almost as if it were refurbished???). No packaging

No distance


Inexpensive. Easy to use. Good sound quality when near

Sound quality degrades at more than three feet between the phone and the headset or of the phone is in the pats pocket

Flexible Bluetooth headset


The Plantronic Explorer 232 also works with my MacBook using OSX Leopard bluetooth.

Good sound. It works with my LG enV2 cellphone. Although not documented by enV2, Explorer 232 auto-syns with the enV2 when turned on. Just the headset I am looking for

Nothing so far

OK at best


Smaller, lightweight

Uncomfortable! The ear piece that wraps around is very thin, which I thought would be great while wearing sunglasses in the car, but otherwise is very uncomfortable unless you have tiny ears! Sound quality definitely not as good as my original...

Good Blue Tooth!


First blue tooth device, I found this to be a very good bang for the buck.

Good sound, mic seems to pick up my sound pretty well according to others I speak to. I like the way it looks, and the signal transmission from cell phone to device is never choppy/fuzzy if your cell phone is reasonably close to the device

When you are in a noisy room or place, it's almost impossible to hear the person you are talking to. Don't buy this if you plan to use it in a club or a gym ; Only works in your right ear

This is the first bluetooth headset I've ever owned, so I don't have a lot to compare to. Glad I got it while it was on special for $15.99, because you can probably do better for $29.99.

Fits nicely. It works on either ear by sliding the hook up off of the post and turning it over sliding it back on. Works fine in a car as long as you turn off A/C, otherwise you can't hear who you're talking to. Has volume control push-button that...

Had to download a decent manual from the Plantronics website, as the one included is just the bare minimum basics. Hard to hear even at highest volume in medium noise areas. Probably impossible in extremely noisy areas

Worth $15. 'nough said.

It does a pretty good job for what it cost me. I like the snug fit in my smaller ear, and it isn't too flashy or big

It doesn't pick up the signal perfectly from my LG flip phone. I had the phone in my pocket and I still get a little bit of static ; Also, after more than 15 to 20 minutes of wearing it my ear begins to get sore ; just like wearing cheap headphones...
